Not a good idea. This way you start privoxy needlessly as root.
You didn't change the port privoxy listens on to something lower than
1024, did you?
sudo invoke-rc.d privoxy start
sudo /etc/init.d/privoxy start

Privoxy starts automatically for me.
What do
ls -l /etc/rc2.d/*privoxy*
ls -l /etc/init.d/*privoxy*

Is /var/log/privoxy owned by the user "privoxy"?
